Some of my blogger friends have been posting archived pictures. Well I can say these are not archived! But newly found!! LOL LOL
We worked through all that. Meghan rode her for three years at the 4-H fair, as a junior. She got blue ribbons on her. She rode Western Eq., Bareback Eq., Hunt Eq., trail, Showmanship, and they did gaming. That little pony would do it all! LOL she did have some Shetland attitude at times, and Meghan rode her with a little pair of nub spurs, but that was all she needed. ( she only bucked Meg off one time! LOL and Meg fell off one time waiting in line after being judged for bareback class, she was wiping the dirt off of her butt LOL and Sugar moved and she slid off! LOL In front of the whole grandstands full of people! LOL LOL)
I ended up selling her, after Meg outgrew her. Sugar was only 7 when we sold her, she had a lot of kids to raise!!! Sadly I sold her to someone who was a regular at the feed store I worked at. I thought they were knowledgeable, well not so much. They cowboyed her and she fell back to the fear response she had before we got her, scraped their son off on a fencepost (sigh). Poor baby. What can you do after the fact. I sure wish I knew where she was now. The people I sold her to had her less than a year, and didnt tell me they were selling her again. I hope she went to someone kind and has had a good life. She would be 16 now. Little Sugar Booger, she was a fun pony!
That little saddle in the background, I found it at a garage sale for $2, yes $2!!! LOL The tree was not broken and it needed a little TLC, stirrup fixed and such. LOL my sister in law has it now as decor in her house!
